I am a french tutor in Bath. 

Originally from France, I've been living and working in England for more than 30 years and I'm very familiar with the culture and mentality of the country.

I have a very good knowledge and understanding of English and French grammar and can easily and clearly refer to both in my teaching. 

Dynamic, creative and very reliable I offer face-to-face classes for adults and online tuitions for adults, children and students.

With a great range of resources and activities, I will strengthen your speaking & writing skills as well as your existing knowledge of... la France!
